Are you in Tokyo or are you in New Zealand?

Keiko--you've got ambient down, but I'd offer that at some point you need to try some faster tempos and certainly some different rythms or time signatures. (as you say, maybe a late night thing?) I like the initial tracks on your album more than the later ones.

I'd be interested in your synths & equipment-I've still got a TX802 and a controller or two that haven't been plugged in in years. And a drawer full of midi cables... I do realize that all that's passé these days, but just so you know.

I have cleaned up this thread, gents please stay OT. This is Keiko's thread.

Thanks for sharing, @Keiko_N ! I haven't listened to all your tracks yet, but I like what I have heard so far, very "moody". :)
